"Pray Tell" as written by and Nathan Young Stephen Arnold....
Are you hiding secrets from me?
Is there more to this life that I can't see?
What will I find out over time?
Waiting for the moment to arrive

Why are you lying there?
What are you hiding there?

Hiding away
What are you hiding away from me?
Hide yourself
Why do you hide your face from me
I'm the only one that can save you now
I'm the only one that can save you now

Do you like the shadows in there
Keep me in the dark now are you scared
Will the truth ever set you free
Tell me will you buckle at your knees

What are you hiding there?
Why are you lying there?

Hiding away
What are you hiding away from me?
Hide yourself
Why do you hide your face from me
I'm the only one that can save you now
I'm the only one that can save you now

Lie to yourself
Do you lie to me?
Lie to yourself
Don't hide yourself
Find yourself
Let me find you
Find yourself
Let me find you

Hiding away
What are you hiding away from me?
Hide yourself away
Why do you hide yourself from me
I'm the only one that can save you now
I'm the only one that can save you now

Hide away
Hiding away
Hiding away, why do you hide yourself away?
I'm the only one that can save you now
I'm the only one that can save you now

    General Comment"Lyrically, the song is a cry from Christian to see the "real" faces of people, something that's become harder to do as his band's star has risen. "We all have this game face, this show that we put on, but I feel there's more to people than that, and I wanted more out of people than just what they're showing," he explains."

    He explained it on spin.com.
    I think that's a great explaination. Everyone has hid something before, therefore we can all relate.
    The new album is going to be epic.

    General CommentMaybe for the moment, too wrong-eyed. (Waiting for the moment to arrive)
    Keeping in the dark now, are you scared? (Keep me in the dark now are you scared?)
    Tell me, will you walk or at your knees? (Tell me will you buckle at your knees?)

    I think you have those lines wrong, nice song though.

    General CommentThis is from the official lyrics:

    "Waiting for the moment to arrive."
    "Hide yourself, why do you hide your face from me"
    "Will the truth ever set you free"
    "Lie to yourself, don't lie to me"

    Song Meaning"The beat was inspired by our time in Brazil, we love it there and have made some lifelong friendships with people there.

    This song is for all the ‘sins’ that we try to cover up from people, as if we don’t all fail. We wear so many masks, and over time we end up not being able to tell who we really are. I think it is important to find a few people that we can trust with who we really are.

    Some call them best friends, some call them accountability partners, whatever you call them be brutally honest, we can’t help you out of the bottom of the hole if we don’t know its there." - Stephen Christian anberlinlyrics.tumblr.com June 2014
